Being liberal means you take the time to honor choice, even if you don’t like the proffered options. It means considering the greatest good and putting your own self interest aside. Being liberal means being planful for the future and future generations. Being liberal means just being so that others may be as well.

The opposite

I don’t understand this mindset as well. He examples before us show that being conservative evokes stubbornness to tired ideals. Being conservative means one must affiliate oneself with religious fanatics. That is not the definition of the word. Being conservative should be a liberals ally because, if true to the definition, we’d be conserving and enhancing life at the same time.
